In this photo made Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2013, Brian Preece and his wife Rebecca, of Nampa, Idaho, who want to adopt a Russian boy with Down's syndrome, speak in Moscow, Russia. From their faraway homes in the American West, two couples made repeated missions of love to Moscow, each seeking to adopt children with Down syndrome. Now, with court approval at last in hand, a political squabble with a trace of Cold War friction has derailed those plans, leaving them in anxious limbo. (AP Photo/Misha Japaridze)
